ABOUT NEUFC –
NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) is a football club that competes in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL), the premier football league in Indian football. At the advent of the ISL, the Club, led by actor/producer John Abraham, secured the Northeast franchise to represent the region, which is the hotbed of footballing talent in the country. Thus, on 13th April 2014, the Club, which represents the seven sisters and one brother of the Northeast, was conceived. It was a historic moment in Indian football as NorthEast United FC became the first team in the world to represent a region.
The club is owned by Actor/Producer John Abraham, one of the most prominent superstars in the Indian film industry, with a self-confessed love for football. A former Division A footballer himself, John once dreamed of representing India in the international arena.
Today, NorthEast United FC stands out as the only non-corporate owned club in India's top football division. John takes immense pride in the fact that the Club stays true to its values and is largely successful in providing opportunities to talented players.
The Club prides itself as an entity that both passionately and resolutely stands for the region and was founded on two key pillars: • Use football as a vehicle to empower the region • To be a platform for talent from the region to showcase their ability.
As the beating heart of the Club, John envisions the Club to be a platform that fosters change and encourages youngsters from the region to chase their dreams, with resilience and determination.
